Fire Fighters Respond To Natural Gas Leak

(Le Mars) — The Le Mars Fire and Rescue Department responded to a natural gas leak at Armel Acres Mobile Home Trailer Court Friday evening at about 5:48 p.m. Apparently, residents of the mobile home, located at 10 Birch Street were able to smell gas odors inside their home. When firefighters
arrived on the scene and began investigating the origin of the leak they found the gas line beneath the mobile home had a small rupture. Fire Chief Dave Schipper says when firefighters used their meters, it indicated the gas leak was at 540 parts per million, or at highly explosive levels. Schipper says firefighters removed the trailer home’s skirting and ventilated the gas
from beneath the trailer home. He says the gas leak was between the gas meter and the intake for the furnace. MidAmerican Energy was also called to the scene. A plumbing and heating contractor was contacted in order to replace the ruptured gas line.



“Taste of Summer” Scheduled For Today

(Le Mars) — If you have missed having a famous hotdog from Bob’s Drive Inn, and you would like to help the Le Mars Little League, then you are in luck as today is the “Taste of Summer.” The annual event raises money for the Le Mars Little League program. Nate Kass of Bob’s Drive Inn talks about how
the “Taste of Summer” benefits the Le Mars Little League.

Kass says this year’s “Taste of Summer” fundraising event is especially important since the Le Mars Little League facilities, equipment, and uniforms were damaged as a result of the last September flooding.

In years past, the annual event was held at the Le Mars American LegionĀ Hall, but this year, as was the case from last year, the “Taste of Summer” will be held at Bob’s Drive Inn.

Kass says the “Taste of Summer” on average, sells around 1000 hot dogs.
